Far From the Front Lines, Javelin Missiles Go Unused in Ukraine

I have not heard or read this before. How did this go unmentioned throughout the public impeachment hearings??

1. Out of curiosity, is this a legit site?

Anymore, you can't be sure.

4. FP (Foreign Policy) Magazine is a very well renowned and reputable news source.

It has been around for many years and is well-known in policy circles.

3. You could see this being the

5. Of course they go unused.

There are no battles involving tanks, and haven't been for a while.

In the event of an actual tank incursion, the Javelins could be deployed. Now, would that be fast enough? Dunno. But for now, a couple hundred miles (which might mean 151 or 249) is probably close enough. There'd be some warning, at least a few hours, as to tank maneuvers or the massing of a tank force.
